Epsom Salt for Sore Muscles

Nobody understands sore muscles quite like athletes. When your son has worn and strained muscles after a quick run or a full-on ballgame, he just doesn't want to do much of anything. The magnesium in Epsom salt is a great way to deal with the problem, and we highly recommend Prep U Sport Bath Soak.

Founded by a mom of boys in Austin, Texas in December 2017, Prep U has developed a line of all-natural personal care products specifically for active boys ages 8-17. The name Prep U actually comes from the mission we set out to achieve – to help boys prepare for a lifetime of good hygiene, personal care routines, and healthy self-confidence inspired by self-sufficiency.


 Epsom Salt for Sore Muscles

Magnesium and Muscles

Magnesium is one of many essential minerals. It is required by nearly every tissue in our bodies and contributes to about 600 bodily functions, especially muscle movements.

Magnesium helps sustain your son’s energy levels when he’s working out or playing ball. It also helps with muscle strength, flexibility, sleep, and stress management. It helps muscles relax, prevents cramps and spasms, and is a strong anti-inflammatory. Magnesium also helps replenish the red blood cells that are responsible for giving his body oxygen during a workout.

As you can see, whether your athlete is an amateur or an adult professional, the mineral is crucial for muscle recovery. But exercise can deplete magnesium levels, and it is very important to get the levels back up.

Eating magnesium- and potassium-rich foods, like oatmeal, brown rice, bananas, avocado and spinach, and drinking lots of water can help. One of the most relaxing ways to get more magnesium into your child’s body is to soak in an Epsom salt bath. Since magnesium can be absorbed through the skin, regular baths can be a big help,
